Authorities are still on the lookout for four men connected a violent robbery and attempted sexual assault that occurred in Shaw’s Blagden Alley about two weeks ago.

The crime happened in an alley on the 900 block of M St. NW around 3 a.m. on Aug. 7.

As we reported earlier this month, a robber threw a man to the ground and punched him before patting him down for money, authorities said. When the robber found the man had no money, he told the man to perform oral sex on him. But the man called out to a bystander who came to his aid, causing the robber to run off with the man’s backpack.

Police yesterday released a video that shows four men they believe are connected to the crime. In the video, the men can be seen walking through or near Blagden Alley.

MPD is asking anyone with information regarding the crime to call them at 202-727-9099 or text the department’s tip line at 50411.
